Organization profile

Introduction / mission

From the fact that you have reached this page I assume that you know that nuclear fusion is the energy source of the universe and that ITER is the large new fusion reaction presently under construction in the south of France, in a worldwide collaboration involving Europe, Japan, China, Russia, the USA, S-Korea and India.

Highlighted phrase

Fusion may have a wonderful image as a sustainable energy source

Organisational profile

Fusion is clean, zero CO2, safe and the fuel is abundant, for all and for ever – it has one big drawback: building a fusion reactor is of surpassing scientific and technological difficulty. A challenge for the engineer!

The TU/e offers probably the world’s most comprehensive selection of specialized lecture courses on fusion topics, as well as a variety of hands-on experiments in the PlasmaLab@TU/e. The approach is interdisciplinary, in a collaboration between Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. You can take up the challenge and follow the stand-alone interdisciplinary Fusion master now.
